    Try version 2.6!

    Hi there. I updated to 2.6 and it seems to be working now. Thanks very much Mark.

    The “opens in new window” checkbox is checked, post is updated but no joy. I’ve only used the 2.6 version of this plugin.

    So you know, I supplemented this plugin with the “external links” plugin and I’m good to go now.

    Justin — Where were you expecting the link to open in a new window? In a nav menu, or in “the loop”?

    In the loop Mark.

    Hi Mark – great plugin but I’ve been experiencing the same issue. I check the box “Open this link in a new window” but it opens in the same window. I tested it in both Firefox and Chrome. I don’t necessarily want to add another plugin. Not sure what you mean by

    Justin — Where were you expecting the link to open in a new window? In a nav menu, or in “the loop”?

    I was expecting that by checking the box, it would open in a new browser tab or window, i.e., leaving the departure page up. Am I missing something?

    When the template uses get_permalink it will never work since the HTML is in the template. so it would always open in the same window.

    I’ve used this fabulous plugin before and I love it. However, I have a menu link called Videos that I want to go directly to a YouTube page with videos. I checked the box for Open This Link In A New Window but it continues to open in the same window. Yes, I just downloaded this two days ago and it is version 2.6. Help me, it’s important!

    Hello, this seems like a great plugin. I’m using it with posts, but unfortunately, I’m also having trouble with opening links in a new window, when the box is checked. I’m using the post-name permalinks, and I just tried using the default setting for permalinks, but that’s not working either … I’m using it together with a “Query Posts” widget, but even just in the normal news archives and navigation menues, the posts are not opening up in a new window … any ideas? Thanks. Katrin.

    Katrin, I did like some others recommended. I added this plugin and it works great for all links outside of your own website.
